I have a dilemma here and I don't know what to do. My rir pullet sustained an injury Tuesday about noon. She was down with her right foot caught in chicken wire I put down on the inside perimeter of my run to keep out predators. ( now gone ) Well, I got her foot out, took her to the vet and have been nursing her ever since. Right now she is dangling from a harness on the bottom rung of a bar stool to try to get her to move her legs and excercise them. She peeps all night and I get up to turn her from side to side. Otherwise she is eating real good and drinking lots of Pedialite. Here's my questions How long would you think it would take for her to heal and bear weight. If she doesn't heal........what's the most humane way to put her down ( no more vet bills pls ) If she heals will the others accept her back in the flock? She is starting to act like a house pet.........constantly wanting to be held etc.....is this good? Some of you may remember my post the other day where I said I took her shopping because I had cabin fever. Now, I am really, really getting the fever and little sleep. But, I really to want to do the RIGHT thing for Scarlet. Any Advise would be so greatly appreciated.
